Most fruits are of high nutritional value the benefits of which are immense.

The unfortunate aspect of many fruits is that they are also high in sugar content. This may pose a problem for anyone trying to maintain a specific weight or shed a few pounds.

The main sugars in fruits are glucose and fructose. These are simple sugars that while are easily digested, are also quickly processed and stored as fat if not immediately needed by the body.

As you can tell by just looking around at the various body types out on the street, people tend to store this fat in different areas of the body.  Nonetheless, the bottom line is that if you want to get the health benefits from fruit while minimizing the impact on your waist line then you should opt for the less guilty of the fruit pleasures.

Below are fruits that are considered to be lower in sugar (the ‘Eat List’) which means that they standardly have less than 10 grams of sugar per 100 grams of the fruit.

As well I have listed fruits that are considered moderate to high in their sugar volume (the ‘Do Not Eat List’) which means that most varieties get up into the double digits on the sugar content per 100 grams.
